some real nice stands here, this has already given me a few good ideas, thank you all, but keep them coming
I´ll make sure to post mine when it´s done. Got the lumber yesterday.
How imoratand is it the the lumber is straight? I think I got very straight 2x6's for the upper frame, but the the 2x4's are not as straight.
My sisters husband is a carpenter and he told me that it was a waste of time to look fer perfectly straight lumber at the store since it would always bend a bit when you bring it home where it is hotter then at the store since i´m not buying dried wood.
Hvae you been storing your lumber at room temperature for some time before building the stands?
